Meet & talk to fellow OstoMates Support | Friendship | Relationships


Quite cynical about many things and have a finely honed sense of irony. I enjoy many hobbies (I hate that word, it sounds like I do quilting) and find that my post-op self is no different from my pre-op- still determined to enjoy life as before. I climbed a mountain in France and wrote a children's novel in the two years since I became an ostomate. Because friends and family never notice or think about this 'disability' though, I find them not attuned to the times when I get tired and need to do nowt much for a day or so and still want me to join in with everything.
Thinking about going back to work for a few hours (I was 'head hunted'-hooray!)but sometimes I feel the need to discuss problems with others who've experienced that not-quite-like-other-people feeling; and to talk about the moment when I have to tell people about my urostomy and see their reaction. So far, one good, one terrible!

Think I've said plenty so far. I sing in a choir and am in a dance group. I'm learning a foreign language and doing a course in digital imaging at present. Enjoying them all.
